The Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership is hosting a workshop to bring together IMW stakeholders to discuss results and lessons learned from a decade of IMW research and strategize for future success. The two day workshop will be a mix of panel discussions, presentations, and smaller work group sessions. We hope you can join us!

Workshop Objectives

  • Foster communication and the sharing of information between IMW stakeholders
  • Discuss how IMW results are being used by regulatory and non-regulatory entities
  • Share results and lessons learned - what works and what doesn’t work
  • Develop an action plan to better connect stream restoration, monitoring, and policy
